Live True vividly illustrates and breaks down the philosophy of Mindfulness, and what it means to live in the present moment; authentically. “Mindfulness and authenticity are inexorably linked. It keeps us honest,” writes Ora Nadrich in her timely, and much needed book on raising awareness and consciousness of who we are, and more importantly; who we are not. Each of the thirty brisk, informative chapters, not only showcase Ora’s effective techniques for living in the present moment with authenticity, but also, in her knowledgeable, and warm narrative style, guides us through various aspects of effective Mindful behavior, while pinpointing the challenges that impede us from connecting to ourselves authentically, and the dangers of not living in total awareness. Each chapter then culminates with a unique, useful meditation for readers to practice: thirty meditations for each of the thirty days in a month to help us discover, awaken and connect ourselves – in a mindful way – to all those qualities and core values that make us unique only to ourselves.
In this thoughtful and straightforward book, Ora shares with us the principles of effective Mindfulness, and combines them with specific meditations that are simple, direct and applicable to everyone, and helps connect us to our true nature. Authenticity is her mantra.
Live True provides practical, tangible information and meditations to help us connect with our authentic selves, and keep us connected. Ora, who adheres to the Buddhist principle, “What we believe, we become,” has helped awaken hundreds with her Mindfulness Meditation techniques to overcome the obstacles that hold us back, and keep us from achieving the many benefits of being mindful.
Fake news and “alternative facts” permeate our modern culture, causing ever more confusion to what is real and true. Authenticity is more important than ever as a prescription for peace, happiness and fulfillment. Live True fills that prescription.
Written in a down-to-earth, supportive voice, Ora’s Live True offers the modern approach to Buddhist teachings of awareness and compassion; making them instantly accessible and adaptable to everyday life and everyday people. The book is expertly divided into four sections – Time, Understanding, Living, and ultimately, Realization — to take the reader through the necessary stages of understanding how to connect to our authentic selves and experience the joy and peace – the ever-present wholeness – that comes from living Mindfully. “Everyone needs a daily discipline,” Ora advises, “to attain clarity and focus, to make it easier to envision and attain goals. This book will help guide you through the mindful practice of meditation and connecting to your inner awareness, in order to live more truthfully and authentically, which will help you stay on track and take control of your destiny.”
